Protein Protein Interaction Series: Proteins that are non-Newtonian

Measuring viscosity at a single and arbitrary shear rate provides limited information which can be difficult to interpret. A much more thorough understanding of a formulation is obtained by measuring the shear rate dependence. In addition to the practical relevance of predicting the behavior during application or processing, the details of a non-Newtonian response reflect the molecular interactions and resulting microstructure at therapeutic levels. Even protein solutions at moderate concentrations can exhibit a Newtonian plateau followed by a shear thinning region illustrating the importance of non-hydrodynamic forces and degree of structure formation.

Go Green!

Intrinsic viscosity has been a parameter commonly used in the waste and recycle process. Based on a recently published article on Engineer Live, about 46% of waste in the oceans have been directed to fishing nets. On top of recycle programs and efforts to reduce the amount of waste, a company called Plastix A/S uses methods to reduce viscosity of the fishing nets which are mainly polyethylene (HDPE). Using compatible polymers, industry developers have been reviewing the potential to use various polymer dynamics to deter a continuous use of material into a method of cycled reuse.
